Is This a Sneak Peek of Apple’s iPad 5?
A new video that compares Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) upcoming iPad 5 to the iPad 4 and iPad mini has been posted online by Chinese parts supplier SW-Box, MacRumors reports. Although previously leaked images that purport to show Apple’s fifth-generation rear iPad shell have already emerged online, this new, high-quality video features detailed measurements and an opportunity to see how the iPad 5 looks like when it is placed next to Apple’s older-generation tablets.
The video also demonstrates that the iPad 5′s rear shell is considerably lighter than the iPad 4′s rear shell. While the iPad 4 casing weighs 146 grams, the iPad 5 casing weighs just 92 grams. These specifications appear to be in line with KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s predictions that the iPad 5 would be approximately 15 percent thinner and 25 percent to 33 percent lighter than the previous generation.
